ROCKY MOUNT – Two state-of-the-art operating rooms will be added to Carilion Franklin Memorial Hospital, according to Boone District Supervisor Ronnie Thompson with the Franklin County Board of Supervisors.
Thompson said Carilion made the announcement at Tuesday night’s Board Meeting and an official announcement will be made by Carilion soon.
Deputy Administrator Chris Whitlow says the expansion coincides with plans to expand Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital, a $300 million project. The Rocky Mount expansion will cost several million dollars, Whitlow said.
Thompson and Whitlow were guests on Cable 12’s Rise and Shine program Wednesday morning, when they shared the news.
